New Swedish science prize awarded to leading US cancer researcher
Date:1/29/2008

The American cancer research pioneer Professor Robert A Weinberg is the first recipient of the science prize inaugurated by the foundation set up by Swedish scientists Georg and Eva Klein. The prize is awarded in person by Crown Princess Victoria at a ceremony in Stockholm on 29 January 2008. The prizewinner, who is to be a leading international researcher in his or her field, is invited to Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm for two weeks to give lectures and forge links with research leaders, postgraduates and visiting researchers.

Professor Weinberg works at the Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research, Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He has made a number of pioneering discoveries in basal tumour biology. His research demonstrates, for example, how genes and the proteins they control combine to convert a healthy cell into a cancer cell. He has also made important discoveries on how tumour suppressant genes (TSGs) can prevent the development of tumours. Understanding these processes will make it easier for scientists to find effective treatments for different kinds of cancer.

Robert A Weinberg is a cancer researcher with an extremely high international reputation, says associate professor Marie Arsenian Henriksson at Karolinska Institutet. We are very pleased that he has agreed to come to Sweden to talk about his research.
